It’s hard to keep track of the dueling Snow White films, but Tarsem Singh's project just got some more star power. Joining Julia Roberts, Lily Collins, and Armie Hammer, Nathan Lane and Robert Emms will fill out two secondary character roles. The Tony Award winner Lane will play the role of Brighton, a servant to the Queen, while Emms will be Renbock, Prince Alcott’s valet.

While these sound like small roles, it can be assumed that Lane will make it a memorable one. Lane can currently be seen in his reoccurring guest spot on Modern Family, and is famous for his roles in film and on stage like THE BIRDCAGE and THE PRODUCERS.

Emms' star is on the rise with upcoming roles in Roland Emmerich’s ANONYMOUS, set to release September 30, 2011 and Steven Spielberg’s WAR HORSE, out December 28, 2011.

Check out the official casting announcement and plot synopsis from Relativity Media after the break.

"Lane and Emms join Oscar®-winner Julia Roberts, Lily Collins (THE BLIND SIDE), and Armie Hammer (THE SOCIAL NETWORK) in the yet-to-be-titled Snow White, in which visionary director Tarsem Singh (IMMORTALS) creates a spectacular reimagining of the classic fairy tale. An evil queen and an exiled princess struggle for control of their kingdom in a spirited adventure comedy, filled with jealousy, romance and betrayal, that will capture the imagination of audiences the world over. Pre-production has begun, and principal photography will start in June. The theatrical release date is set for June 29, 2012."
